A Brigg event - the first of its kind to be held in the town - proved so successful that a repeat has been arranged.
Local landlord Shane Garrett hosted the initial LGBTQ Night at his Britannia Inn, Wrawby Street, on Sunday April 21 (pictured above).
The abbreviation stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Questioning.
The successful event featured drag comedy by performers from Doncaster.
Shane now informs us that he's arranged another event with the same format for August 24.
Last Saturday (April 27) saw a trip down memory lane for older regulars at the Britannia.
A 60th birthday was being celebrated and the family in question invited regulars in the bar to share their sandwiches and snacks.
Such generous gestures used to common-place on local licensed premises years ago but you don't often see them today.
There was still some food remaining at the end of an enjoyable night which also featured music and dancing.
